Well written little story. Not really my cup of tea, but I do like your style, and I enjoyed the way you put it all together.

What a lovely follow-up. Had you already planned on doing it when you wrote the final scene of Expecting Trouble? I was amused by the Ducky code and translations. I liked that Tim was observant enough to notice that Tony was off and sensitive enough to realize that it was serious business. I liked that Tim and Ziva recognized that the pranks had gone beyond appropriate teasing and quietly investigated who was responsible. I like your mature, caring Tim who isn’t afraid (much) to seize control and force Tony to confess his heartache.

When Tony gives his heart, he gives it all.

Coming at this late, I see...thought I'd set my author alerts for your stories, but looks like I hadn't. Sigh.
This was simply lovely from beginning to end. I love the way you write Tim. It's what I'd love to see more of on the show. And the Tony/Abby dynamic is lovely too! Heck, all the relationships are totally believable here.
I agree with the other reviewer who commented on your ability to tag onto your previous stories. Wonderful job, Scouse!

Oooo I loved this! You're so good at picking up the pieces from a story and turning them into a sequel.
his brain was like a bouncing, quicksilver bunny This is sooo Tony!
I absolutely loved Ducky's 'subtle' hints to Gibbs and YAY to Tim for his brains and his big heart :D

This was an adorable tag to 'Expecting Trouble'.
I especially loved Ducky's indirect dodge of doctor-patient confidentiality. Ducky-code is sheer brilliance.
Your take on Tim continues to impress me. The Troublemint Twins are a formidable force, and it was so great to see McGee watching Tony's back like that. Even nicer that Gibbs saw it was appropriate to step back and allow the junior agent to step up.
Loved Abby's affection for Tony, too. Her offer to bring over Chinese, watch movies and snuggle was just too precious. You gave me the warm fuzzies just reading that.
Tony's revelation to McGee about his investment in Lucy and his jealousy over what the Hastings have was done to perfection. I felt his pain, and wondered how much his missed opportunities for 'settling down' must affect him on a subconscious level... This incident with Polly and Lucy just brought it all to the fore, I guess.
Alrighty... cheers to Tony for accepting Polly's request, and cheers to you for another excellent fic.

I was absolutely touched by this. Tony is still hurting and this time it's affected him emotionally and physically. Liked when Gibbs showed up at his doorstep asking why Tony hadn't appeared in his basement yet. And Tony had honestly admitted that Ducky hadn't allowed his to drive yet. And Gibbs being able to read what Ducky was really meaning dring their conversation about Tony. And Gibbs would realize that Tony would be better off at work doing cold cases so he could be watched better.
I knew that there was no way that Tony could focus on cold cases all day. And loved him getting so bored that he had to go down to Abbys to "make a nusiance of himself" And it was sweet of Abby to bring Chinses and stay to make sure Tony got a good nights sleep.
And yes Tony would getn teased abour delivering Polly's baby but he took it and the jokes so well. But he'll pay them back when he is better. And i also loved that Tony was asked to be the god father of Polly's baby. This was such a moving chapter and I loved the vulnerable yet serious though injured Tony along with all the Papa Gibbs. And yes I loved the Tony and Abby. This made me very happy. Absolutely wonderful as usual!
